    • Not sure about the lease read through all the documents i have and couldnt find anything about parking. Contacted the management Office to get a copy sent to me. When i complained to them about the ticket they told me to appeal so they clearly don't care.      and yes it's a gated underground parking area with key fob entry.

    • Oh and before bed   Officially leaked statements about a PHE report claiming that a UK study will say there is little evidence of children transmitting Covid.   Leakers stats look impressive until you realise he's on Johnson's SAGE so makes you think - huh - hows that then when all the science I've seen says different, and there are a number of reports of spreads in schools across the world from schools that had opened.   Then, little as the information 'leaked' is, you see   "largest studies in the world on coronavirus in schools" and then "The study was carried out in 100 institutions in the UK and is expected to be published later this year. About 20,000 pupils and teachers in 100 schools across England were tested to monitor the spread of the disease up to the end of the summer term – which runs from April-July in Britain."   Then you click. That averages 200 pupils and staff per 'institution' checked We dont know what these institutions are, but I think over 200 is the average for infants schools. Other schools tend to be FAR larger. Did they test everyone at each institution, or just some ??? we don't know yet - they are choosing not to leak that - Wonder why?   We currently understand that younger children (pre teenage) seem to present few/less symptoms  (statistically) but large increases in teenager covid has been reported as lockdowns ease and they start to meet more.   I know my OH's grandson (mother a nurse) has remained at school in classes one third or less that normal, with the majority of kids having front line worker parents - so well aware of the discipline and hygiene necessary. We know the schools maintain distancing, monitoring and maintenance which would be IMPOSSIBLE in normal class sizes.   So in a lock down situation, with class sizes significantly lower than normal (highly aware front-line workers kids mainly), increased distancing and cleaning made possible by SIGNIFICANTLY smaller class sizes - Has maybe resulted in no great evidence of covid spread perhaps?   Well Whoopy do. Lets ramp the class sizes back up to 30+ and see what happens ..     Lets let the mail lead the way Coronavirus infection rates are rising in ALL age groups under 65, Public Health England data shows with biggest surge in under-fives which 'should be watched very carefully' https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8615423/Coronavirus-infection-rates-rising-age-groups-65-Public-Health-England-data-shows.html     and the ONS stats showing how similar the stats are (a statistically significant  difference can be very little actual difference)   https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/healthandsocialcare/conditionsanddiseases/articles/coronaviruscovid19infectionsinthecommunityinengland/july2020     Notes: These statistics refer to infections reported in the community, by which we mean private households. These figures exclude infections reported in hospitals, care homes or other institutional settings.  
    • i understand and agree you should write a formal letter of complaint about the email by royal mail.   i also think you should totally dispute the arrears balance, esp as it goes back so long   send them an sar and add to the text in it that you want statements/bills dating back to the gb energy a/c.
    • When you see the reports coming out that serco was involved from the earliest stages apparently to give expertise   and that resulted in 18 million plus people coming back into the UK untested from hotspots .. and then even the general advice to self isolate after they had travelled across the UK home being withdrawn in the run-up to the lock down   That went well says cummings

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
      Thanks for reading

Hi, Posting on behalf of family member who today received a phone call from a neighbor saying the police were kicking her door in.


Turned out there was a warrant for stolen electric,mobile phones etc..


Nothing was found other than her partners little bit of cannabis that he smokes after work, odd joint.


The front door is a complete mess and will need to be replaced as it was

already damaged from a previous visit from the police. Just found this out as below.


Now here is where it gets interesting:


Just found out that the previous tenants were bad uns and today while the police were at the house the previous tenant walked by and the police actually knew him by name and asked if he still lived here, meaning the address there were at.

Also come to notice is that the police were regular attended at the address and a young girl was raped in the property.


(I'm sure the letting agency should have had a right to disclose this information before letting a home.Disgusted we were not informed of this)


Sounds to me the information the police received is outdated for the suspect and the police did no checks to the current status of the tenancy.


More so the police informed me when I arrived at the house that they had been trying for ages to get a reply, knocking on the door and asking neighbors for telephone numbers.

Turns out the door was smashed in within 20 minutes of them arriving at the house. This can be proved.


The police are now saying they are not responsible for the damage to the door and its down to the tenants because they found a small £10 bag of cannabis.


Completely fuming and looking for some legal advice as to where we stand as to the damage to the door, looking at around £300/£400 as the whole door will need replacing and possible some repairs to the frame.

Also have bloody great plod footprints over the black leather sofa.



I'm more than 90% sure they were coming regarding another person been arrested from this house for the same crime and just didn't care to check.


If they had checked they would have found a young working couple who were trying to make home looking forward to there 1st child.

Been tenants for over 1 year without any problems since moving in.


Have a complaint filed with the police and waiting for someone to call back

but would prefer to send a detailed letter of complaint in.


Anyone please offer any advise as at the moment the door is only secured with wood nailed/screwed up.


Anyone good with letter writing for a complaint to the police as I'm useless

and tend to waffle a bit.

I fear that the bag of cannabis may be all that the police need to deny responsibility for replacing the door.


Since this is not really a landlord and tenant problem I wonder if you would be better off reposting it in the General Knowledge forum where you are more likely to get a more informed answer.

The police ARE liable they cannot justify their actions after the event simply because of the convenient fact they found a small amount of cannabis. However be warned if you do pursue an action you may find that they in revenge will start a prosecution for the possession of drugs. Having found drugs they might even make a return visit (they have grounds) with the express intention of searching for more

Hi JonCris I was also think the same way and think the cannabis they found is incidental.


Police called tonight regarding complaint but calling back tomorrow at request.


Have a temporary letter ready will post it tomorrow after I find out what the police have to say.

If warrant was for you at the address the canabis would get them off the hook, but as they were obvioulsy after someone else, they shouldnt get away with pulling a fast one.


Remember the case in the news a while ago when the police went to a completely wrong address,at first they wouldnt admit it was their responsibility to remedy. They had a battle but eventually got an apology and new door and those people were not even the intended address and they tried it on:rolleyes:.


They should carry a voucher in case of mistakes. I promise to pay the bearer a new door and fitting costs, signee Pc Richard head.

The warrant was for the address and didn't point to any person.

The thing that got me was the old tenant walking by and the police actually knowing who he was and asking if he still lived at the house.

A simple check with voting would have shown new tenants although I think it was the house they targeted.


Not letting them get way with this, they were arrogant and rude and didn't care about the belongings in the house.

Lets hope the police who call today regarding the complaint handle this well and get a new door sorted out.
